In this paper we present giant planetary companions to the stars HD 28185 and HD 213240 . Both candidates were discovered in the context of the CORALIE extra-solar planet search programme. The planet around HD 28185 , with a minimum mass of 5.7 MJup is one of the first long period planets (P=383 days) discovered so far orbiting its host star in a nearly circular trajectory. On the other hand, the planet around HD 213240 , with a 951-day period orbit, an eccentricity of 0.45, and a minimum mass of 4.5 MJup, is more typical of the up to now discovered long period systems.

Key words: planetary systems -- stars: individual: HD 28185 -- stars: individual: HD 213240
